The article focuses on the suggestions from the research "The power and pitfalls of executive reward: a behavioural perspective," by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) on the inequalities of the wage of employees in Great Britain. It mentions the payment gained by a chief executive officer (CEO) higher than a typical employee. The statement of CIPD that the skills attitudes are not supported by the methods to reward and incentivise the senior leaders is also discussed.
